Suse 9.0 and Seti


I've installed Suse 9.0 on my PC, and everything is running fine. The problem I've encountered is this:-

If I have Seti running, the Pc runs so slow i.e. apps are slow to open and when they do the window appears in jerky movements. Web pages scroll very roughly as well. If I kill seti everything is back to normal speed. I have tried lowering the priority of seti but although this helps, the problem is still there just not quite as bad.

The machine in question is a 2.8ghz Hyper-threading Intel P4, with 2gb RAM and geforce 4 graphics. Which was the same machine I had Suse 8.2 running on with seti and I never had this problem.

If someone could perhaps give me some ideas as to what might be causing this, as I don't seem to be making much head way.

Otherwise Suse 9.0 is an excellent distro, which apart from this is working fine for me.
